My good Norwegian mate <Diademas> already provided a simple knockout schedule:

Personally I think it would be easier to just nominate your predicted winners after each knockout stage but it's <WannaBe>'s baby so this is the way he wants to do it.

  optimal play: England soccer fans are racist.

This is why I had to put <Dr Winston OBoogie> on ignore.

I just became so disgusted with his racism!

This YouTube video highlights the racism of England soccer fans:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxC...

England's soccer hooligans such as <Dr Winston OBoogie> have been called out for their racism:

"Colombia lost and racism won again"

"I'm 98% sure the ref of the Colombia-England game is racist. Also the English team is a bunch of floppers"

"The Colombia vs England game was so rigged. Stupid ref is racist"

"So we can all agree that the ref for England vs Colombia game is racist"

"At the pub watching the England match. As the only POC in the room I really want Colombia to win. So the racists don't get their way"

"This won't make me popular but I can't help thinking that the last thing we need right now is for England to win the world cup and whip the country up into a swollen-headed flag-waving nationalist fervour"

"People who typically fly the English flag are gammon-faced Neanderthals"

Let's just hope that England lose and racism is defeated!

Don't worry. Chances of them winning all is ZERO. I know my soccer;)

  thegoodanarchist: Unfortunately I think France will win. I will cheer for Croatia!

It is easier to pronounce the names of the Croatian players. Just end every name with "-itch"

But the French? You never know which letters to say and which letters you should pretend don't exist.

French is a weird language.

Premium Chessgames Member
  optimal play: Like you I think France will win yet I'll also be cheering for Croatia.

I don't know about the names, however.

The Croatian names sound just as unpronounceable as those in the French team.

Usually French names are fairly easy to pronounce.

You know, like Coco Chanel or Louis Vitton or Brigitte Bardot and the like.

But the names in this French team?!

Mbappé?

Dembélé?

Sidibé?

Maybe they need to be pronounced with an African accent?

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  optimal play: <Will Croatia Destroy the Narrative?>

<Last European team to face Africa in World Cup final.>

https://www.amren.com/commentary/20...

<Europe’s soccer teams are changing just like Europe. In order to reach the finals, Croatia played England, a team with a demographic profile similar to that of France. In a recent Associated Press article, English coach Gareth Southgate bragged that his team represented “modern England:” Eleven of the team’s 23 players were reportedly of African or Caribbean descent.>

<Yet one nation seems to be still “what it was,” to use President Trump’s words — and it has an incredible soccer team. Croatia, a nation of just four million people, will field an all-white (all-Croatian!) team when it plays France in the finals.>

<Tiny Croatia has only 513,000 men of prime soccer-playing age compared to France’s 7.9 million. While the English, French, and Belgian teams represent the legacy of colonization and Third World immigration, Croatia’s team still represents the Croatian nation.>

<France’s team has little to do with the historic French nation. Only six of its 23 players are white. Seventeen are sons of first-generation immigrants. Eight are from the banlieues, the Third World slums that surround French cities. These are described by the New York Times as “places with large, working-class, non-white communities, synonymous with riots and social strife, thought of as breeding grounds for crime and terrorism.” Twelve of the 23 players have black African ancestry, and if you include North Africa, more than 60 percent of the players are African.>

<France, Britain, and Belgium are all suffering the heavy costs of mass immigration, and traditional liberties such as free speech are already being throttled to prevent criticism of the multiracial experiment. A winning soccer team will not solve these problems>

<Even to speak of the “French team” is ridiculous — it is more of an international franchise than a real national symbol.>

<Croatia represents nationalism against the powerful, soulless, rootless international conglomerate masquerading as the “French” national team.>

The players were born in France. They are French.

Now I know why the US does so poorly
in soccer.

They bring in black players.
We stomp the blacks we have into the dirt for a vote.

Most of our potential soccer stars
have probably already assumed room temperature in Chicago, Newark, Camden, Compton, and other "camps" of Obama love.

  saffuna: <They bring in black players. We stomp the blacks we have into the dirt for a vote.>

Yeah, I've noticed how that happened in the NBA and NFL. Blacks are stomped into the dirt and can't play.

<Nigerians have taken to social media to celebrate France's second Fifa World Cup title after beating Croatia 4-2 at the Luzhniki Stadium.>

<Didier Deschamps' side boast of an array of players of African descent, and Nigerians have taken to Twitter to rejoice as a victory for Africa at large.>

  optimal play: <Riots break out in Paris after French World Cup win>

https://www.nzherald.co.nz/world/ne...

<An incredible World Cup final win for France has turned into chaos with riots and looting in Paris.>

Riots by immigrants continue unabated in France but it's worth it just to win the soccer world cup.

If putting together a world cup winning soccer team means flooding your country with poor unemployable Africans, then so be it.

Out of the millions of poor unemployable Africans, there's a pretty good chance you can find at least a dozen or so who are very good at kicking a soccer ball around.

France may be deteriorating into an unliveable third-world neo-African Muslim hell-hole, but hey, they just won the world cup!

That makes the social upheaval all worthwhile.

It's just a matter of getting your priorities right.

It's a plantation, not a “Final Solution.” (yet)

<in the NBA>

Democrats endorsed hoops for the plantation:

<Midnight Basketball League, the Chicago Housing Authority's new program>

Democrats were trying to keep more of the folks they own alive for election day.
(A plantation ain't no good without a crop of voters)

<and NFL>

Think saffuna.
When running from police, who is more likely to get away?

One who's feet are free, carrying under his arm, or one who is dribbling a soccer ball?

That said, the plantation does have that "Most Dangerous Game" feel to it!

How is it that blacks in the NBA and NFL weren't stomped into the dirt?

You're not keeping a list of players who didn't make it.

(Think Morris Chestnut in, "Boyz n the Hood")

When you stomp people into the dirt and only look at the living, you've missed the point.

Life/liberty and the pursuit of happiness, was supposed to give Morris a chance.

saffuna and the Democrats, "disagreed."

  saffuna: <You're not keeping a list of players who didn't make it.>

Oh right.

Seems to me there are only a certain number of roster spots on teams.

And a large number of those spots are occupied by blacks.

Once again, you have proved you are an idiot.
